Rosemarie Austin grew up with a healthy heaping of influencing songwriters during her summers as a teenager at the Kerrville Folk Festival. Traditional blues and country were heard from a small age through her parents speakers whether at home or on the road.

After moving to California in 2002, she earned an associates degree in music at Cabrillo College which included some traditional music theory, jazz theory/improvisation, as well as performing classes for saxophone and voice.

The bands she has been a part of include HipCity Cruz, RJR & Company, A Simple Shade of Blue, and most recently she has played as a duo with Bay area performer and songwriter, Brad Daniels.

She is currently working on songs for a children's album and is releasing her first single of the album this spring, "Baby's Got No Blues Yet" produced by Kenny Schick of Basement 3 Productions
